Hi Navjot,
From my personnel experience, dont ever give beef to lab, it will cause loose stool and stomach upset for them. Chicken, Duck, and Turkey are best for them. As chicken liver is an organ, this should be included in food as minimal quantity, more liver will also cause loose stool for them. Happy to see that you are shifting from processed to home made food. I introduced barf to my lab by giving him one packed food meal on morning and night i gave chicken. After one month, i gave him only chicken.

labs being gun dogs.. hunts for birds... so polutry duck etc are suitable for them, beef not for labs. organs should be abt 5% of the diet. more diet info at colossuskennels.com

Thanks kamal and Anil. I intend to feed chicken atleast 2 times a week. My labrador seems to now bored with kibbles. He have eggs and yogurt happily so im planning to introduce some more home-cooked food in his diet. BARF/PMD are undoubtedly best. Im going to introduce boiled chicken and rice and moniter the outcome. By the way,Anil/kamal he's 7.5 month old and weighs 21 kg. Is that ok?

Hi Navjot,

While boiling the chicken make sure that there should be no bones in it, as you already aware that boiled bones hurt dog's throat but sometimes I wondered that, I fed boiled chicken & rice to one paraiah bitch which is almost 2 years back, she doesnt had any problems in boiled bone. I also think that some adjust and some dont, to be in safer side, I avoided giving boiled bone to Bruno.

Weight, totally depend upon his parents and which line he came from. My lab reached 23kgs when he is 4 months old, and Bruno is from Mr.Anil's breeding. Check your lab parent's adult weight and calculate his weight accordingly.

yes, kamal, Ill be feeding boneless chicken. Actually, ive not seen his parents, but, according to the Vet, who checks him, its ok. But still i thought, lets take a third party's opinion.
